Pitkin Alert updates citizens with real time information during emergencies. If you do not have a land line phone or if you have an IP phone, it is vital for you to sign up for Pitkin Alert, as your phone will not be reached via “reverse 911″. Even if you do have a land line phone, this system is important because you may not physically be at home when an emergency occurs.
Pitkin Alert users can receive free alerts via text message, email, voice or pager. You pick which alerts you will receive, and how you will receive them.
